At the FIFA Under-20 World Cup to be held next month, Korea will be placed in a group with France, Gambia and Honduras, and will challenge to advance to the round of 16 for the third time in a row.
Korea, which was runner-up in the last tournament and belonged to Pot 2, was included in Group F, which was relatively easy.
We met France, a strong player in Europe, but avoided the host countries, Argentina and Uruguay. We were in a group with Honduras, who had never passed the group stage, and Gambia, Africa, who had never made it past the group stage.
Coach Eunjoong Kim promised to advance to the round of 16 for the third time in a row.
